[DML] Re: VIN Conflict (more, long)

When trying to interpet dates you must be aware that in Europe it is
very common to go Date-Month-Year. In America it is Month-Date-Year. I
know they were working for the American market primaraly but you have
to wonder if they fell back into old habits and transposed the Month
and the Date. Easy to figure out if the first number group is larger
than 12, not so easy otherwise. The date might also be the order date,
not the actual construction date, you have to wonder if ALL the doors
could be built on the same day. It could also be that all the doors
built that week had the same date so they knew who was building doors
that batch/week. These are the kind of questions it would be great to
be able to ask former workers from the factory.
